LP, Vinyl record album


4.90 26

Rare rootsy work from Russell Hoke – a set of recordings that are mostly from the 80s, featuring Russell on banjo and vocals – but with the same sort of unique vibe as his guitar-based albums! There's a really odd, offbeat feel going on here – a timeless sense in the presentation of the music, but a very unsettling quality to some of the lyrics – a bit like the blend of past and present that you'd hear on the first Palace Brothers album – but mostly recorded by Russell in the decade before! The banjo's clearly schooled in bluegrass, but is set free to explore other modes – as are Hoke's own vocals, which remain as distinct as ever. Titles include "Happy Anyway", "Hangin At Charlies", "Falling Rain", "Wanderin & Wonderin", "Artificially Wise", "Twenty First Century Ice Age", "Vanished Realm", and "Scorpio Madi". (Very limited. Comes in a hand-assembled package from Russell himself.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Finders Keepers (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2 LPs
A beautifully trippy duo who work here mostly with electronics – but who use the instruments in very organic ways that are almost acoustic! There's an earthy, almost hippieish quality to the sounds on the set – music that belies the pair's placement in the pre-New Age instrumental ... LP, Vinyl record album

Finders Keepers (UK), 1975. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
Funky breaks and fuzzy guitars – one of the most amazing albums to come out of the Turkish scene of the 70s – and one with a sound that really defies categorization!
